Right. The problem is that I spent a lot of time trying to get someone to
write this ... then finally wrote it myself in one afternoon with tools I am
familiar with. At this point, it has been tested by several people and it
works fine on a legacy system.

Keep in mind that with the demo, we are only demonstrating some concepts.
We can break whatever rules to get it done. The software will be thrown out
after the demo. I really don't want to re-do pieces that are done enough at
this point. I want to focus on getting the pieces done that are left to be
done. If we have time to put something in there that is better, we can do
that. But let's get it all done and assembled before we talk about re-doing
parts of it. We are going to make a go/no-go decision March 1 for a March
15 demo.
